Visited whilst on holiday as a family. Was recommended by the housekeeper. Booked ahead, (we were advised). Lovely surroundings overlooking the lake. Staff very friendly. Ordered hot smoked salmon salad with horseradish, this was nice. Kids had garlic bread which was ok. My youngest had chicken pieces and chips, chicken was homemade and lovely, chips disappointing as frozen not homemade.... More

Arrived at lakeside cafe hoping for some gluten free/ dairy free food! and i was amazingly surprised when the lady showed me that they had either gluten free vegan cupcakes and a chocolate cake! I had the chocolate cake and it tasted lovely, definitely coming back when in Newquay again!

Staff very helpful and polite. Very clean cafe. The food was fantastic. I would recommend that if you have the children's chicken nuggets and you have two children to have one between them as they are big. The prices where fairly reasonable. I will definitely go again when I am down in Newquay again on holiday.

Telephoned. I asked if they did breakfast. Told yes. I asked if I needed to book. Told No. Is it busy on Thursday? Told no. Asked what time is breakfast. Politely told 'we are busy' and phone left open (placed down on counter?). I assumed she would be back to deal with me ASAP to answer my final question so... More

Always have at least one evening meal in the Lakeside when in Newquay. Tonight wonderful prawn cocktail, steak and cheesecake what an amazing taste sensation. You will not get better food anywhere and the waitresses are polite and good fun too. Looking forward to next time.

Was recommend by my cousin. We arrived to a pleasant welcome and our table was ready. Standard menu was great but also the specials menu looked good!
